Hello guys!

Well I bought a Game programming book which uses the C language and Allegro. Im studying programming in uni right now, im fairly familiar with C/Java/C++.
I cant get this simple "Hello World!" program to work, I get a few compile errors, that I cant quite figure out. I have done everything the book says, yet I cant get it to work. Im using Dev-C++, that might be it, Im not sure. Ive tried installing allegro in 2 different ways, 1 being how the book explained, and the other one is by the tools tab in dev-c++ -> update -> download it lol.

int main(void)
set_gfx_mode(GFX_SAFE, 640, 480, 0, 0);
textout_ex(screen, font,"Hello World!",1, 1, 10, -1);
return 0;

Thats the hello world, and here are the compile errors im getting:
.drectve `-aligncomm:"___DTOR_LIST__",2 ' unrecognized
.drectve `-aligncomm:"___CTOR_LIST__",2' unrecognized
[Linker error] undefined reference to `WinMain@16'
ld returned 1 exit status
C:\Users\Ali\Desktop\testing\Makefile.win [Build Error] [Project1.exe] Error 1
